Rapist gets 55 years.

Madison-Rankin District Attorney Michael Guest issued the following press release.

Madison County Serial Rapist Receives 55-Year Sentence for Sexual Battery and Burglary

Madison and Rankin Counties’ District Attorney Michael Guest announced today that Laddarious Keon Hobson pled guilty to Sexual Battery and Burglary involving two Canton women and was sentenced to serve 55 years in the custody of the Mississippi Department of Corrections. Hobson will be required to register as a sex offender once he is released from custody.

On July 4, 2015, the Canton Police Department received a 911 call from a 68 year old victim who reported that an individual armed with a knife had forced his way into her home and sexually assaulted her. The victim was able to give police a description of the suspect prior to being transported to the the University of Mississippi Medical Center where a rape kit was performed and later tested at the crime lab where a DNA profile of the suspect was developed.

On October 9, 2015, the Canton Police Department was contacted and requested to respond to a home where a developmentally challenged female had been sexually assaulted. Police arrived and spoke with the victim’s mother and learned that an individual possessing a can of mace forced his way into the house where he physically and sexually assaulted her daughter. The victim’s mother was able to give a description of the suspect that matched the defendant in the earlier sexual assault. The victim was taken to the hospital and a rape kit was performed. The Crime Laboratory tested the rape kit and was able to develop a DNA profile of the suspect.

Several days later, the Canton Police Department developed Hobson as a suspect. The mother, of the victim who had been assaulted the week prior, was able to pick Hobson out of a photo lineup as the man who forcibly entered her home and assaulted her daughter. On October 15, 2015, Hobson was arrested and when questioned he denied involvement in either case.

55 years will have to do, but a long drop on a short rope would be much better. Preferably in front of the Canton court house at noon on Saturday. That would give the other thugs something to think about. 55 is still a lot better than what he would have been sentenced in Hinds County.

12:50, I am philosophically against the death penalty, but in cases like this I think I could flip the switch (or whatever) myself without a second thought.

Somehow I can't get past the notion of the mother 'watching' the boy enter the house and rape her daughter. Was there no kitchen drawer full of knives?

I was in the courthouse when this happen serving on a jury. He's probably lucky the guy pleaded guilty. The jury I served on was a forgery case, our DA and his star witness were horrible. We acquitted the guy in ten minutes.

6:41 a.m., Sometimes you don't get all the details about a case as a juror. I also have been in the courthouse for a number of criminal cases and I know several prosecutors, both federal and state. They are prohibited by law from giving you all of the facts in some situations. Maybe they gave you all they had. Before ignorantly bragging about cutting someone loose, you might want to do some investigating. But throwing anonymous rocks is so much easier, isn't it. You big old courageous juror, you.

Just FYI for 6:41 a.m., I did some checking and find out that you let a guy walk after ten minutes of deliberation even after he admitted that he knew the check was bogus and confessed that he just wanted to get his cut of the check. On top of that, this guy has previously walked after being indicted for drugs, shooting into a house, and oh yeah...murder. But you deliberated for ten minutes.

I am guessing that the DA ( it's probably 11:54) did about as good of a job on those other cases as he/she did on this one. If its not admissible in court that's not the defendants problem. None of us were naive enough not to know that this guy had a past. Not many people with his background turn themselves in the day they are contacted about a crime. Despite his inept lawyer the DA failed to prove their case and they let the big fish at said bank get away.
I might add that the judge met with us after the case to thank us for our service. The Foreman asked what he, the judge taught about the case. He remarked that, "he never second guessed a Jury" but that he would have overruled us, had we found him guilty because they had not proven their case.

Oh Contrary, 11:54 the defendant didn't confess to anything. how inept of you to let him even say he turned himself in when he was never asked if he had. Your witness was unable to answer simple banking questions. Then you let the defendant do his monologue. The judge didn't say it but he was amused by that too.

Dude, I'm not the DA. I just asked about the case from the folks in the DA's office. The previous times jurors let this criminal go, he was in Hinds County.

Yep, we all understood he was from Jackson. We also understood that you were trying to railroad him because the banks insurance company insisted you do it. Both you and their investigator did a horrible job. The guy was a dupe and you let the big fish get away.

Who is the Hottest Reporter in Jackson?

Trollfest '09

Trollfest '07 was such a success that Jackson Jambalaya will once again host Trollfest '09. Catch this great event which will leave NE Jackson & Fondren in flames. Othor Cain and his band, The Black Power Structure headline the night while Sonjay Poontang returns for an encore performance. Former Frank Melton bodyguard Marcus Wright makes his premier appearance at Trollfest singing "I'm a Sweet Transvestite" from "The Rocky Horror Picture Show." Kamikaze will sing his new hit, “How I sold out to da Man.” Robbie Bell again performs: “Mamas, don't let your babies grow up to be Bells” and “Any friend of Ed Peters is a friend of mine”. After the show, Ms. Bell will autograph copies of her mug shot photos. In a salute to “Dancing with the Stars”, Ms. Bell and Hinds County District Attorney Robert Smith will dance the Wango Tango.

Wrestling returns, except this time it will be a Battle Royal with Othor Cain, Ben Allen, Kim Wade, Haley Fisackerly, Alan Lange, and “Big Cat” Donna Ladd all in the ring at the same time. The Battle Royal will be in a steel cage, no time limit, no referee, and the losers must leave town. Marshand Crisler will be the honorary referee (as it gives him a title without actually having to do anything).

Meet KIM Waaaaaade at the Entergy Tent. For five pesos, Kim will sell you a chance to win a deed to a crack house on Ridgeway Street stuffed in the Howard Industries pinata. Don't worry if the pinata is beaten to shreds, as Mr. Wade has Jose, Emmanuel, and Carlos, all illegal immigrants, available as replacements for the it. Upon leaving the Entergy tent, fig leaves will be available in case Entergy literally takes everything you have as part of its Trollfest ticket price adjustment charge.

Donna Ladd of The Jackson Free Press will give several classes on learning how to write. Smearing, writing without factchecking, and reporting only one side of a story will be covered. A donation to pay their taxes will be accepted and she will be signing copies of their former federal tax liens. Ms. Ladd will give a dramatic reading of her two award-winning essays (They received The Jackson Free Press "Best Of" awards.) "Why everything is always about me" and "Why I cover murders better than anyone else in Jackson".

In the spirit of helping those who are less fortunate, Trollfest '09 adopts a cause for which a portion of the proceeds and donations will be donated: Keeping Frank Melton in his home. The “Keep Frank Melton From Being Homeless” booth will sell chances for five dollars to pin the tail on the jackass. John Reeves has graciously volunteered to be the jackass for this honorable excursion into saving Frank's ass. What's an ass between two friends after all? If Mr. Reeves is unable to um, perform, Speaker Billy McCoy has also volunteered as when the word “jackass” was mentioned he immediately ran as fast as he could to sign up.

In order to help clean up the legal profession, Adam Kilgore of the Mississippi Bar will be giving away free, round-trip plane tickets to the North Pole where they keep their bar complaint forms (which are NOT available online). If you don't want to go to the North Pole, you can enjoy Brant Brantley's (of the Mississippi Commission on Judicial Performance) free guided tours of the quicksand field over by High Street where all complaints against judges disappear. If for some reason you are unable to control yourself, never fear; Judge Houston Patton will operate his jail where no lawyers are needed or allowed as you just sit there for minutes... hours.... months...years until he decides he is tired of you sitting in his jail. Do not think Judge Patton is a bad judge however as he plans to serve free Mad Dog 20/20 to all inmates.

Trollfest '09 is a pet-friendly event as well. Feel free to bring your dog with you and do not worry if your pet gets hungry, as employees of the Jackson Zoo will be on hand to provide some of their animals as food when it gets to be feeding time for your little loved one.

Relax at the Fox News Tent. Since there are only three blonde reporters in Jackson (being blonde is a requirement for working at Fox News), Megan and Kathryn from WAPT and Wendy from WLBT will be on loan to Fox. To gain admittance to the VIP section, bring either your Republican Party ID card or a Rebel Flag. Bringing both and a torn-up Obama yard sign will entitle you to free drinks served by Megan, Wendy, and Kathryn. Get your tickets now. Since this is an event for trolls, no ID is required. Just bring the hate. Bring the family, Trollfest '09 is for EVERYONE!!!

This is definitely a Beaver production.
